Re: HLPE consultation on the V0 draft of the Report: Biofuels and Food Security

Please find attached the comments of the Renewable Fuels Association (U.S.).

In general, we believe the V0 draft needs substantial revision before it can be submitted for official peer review. Not only does the report fail to discuss potentially positive impacts of biofuels expansion on food security, but it also inappropriately expands the intended scope of the study, blatantly disregards input from the May 2012 consultation, fails to include a comprehensive literature review, and adopts highly questionable assumptions regarding animal feed co-products, crop yields and other factors.
